"...Lapland UK offers a green alternative to a three-hour plane journey to the Arctic Circle..."
"...visiting Lapland UK, both in terms of cost and carbon emissions, makes it a much more planet and wallet friendly option..."
"...You're greeted in the woodland glade by Eeko Elf who sings a song called busy elves who reduce, reuse and recycle..."
LaplandUK was born out of an ambition to create Christmas magic for children in a more environmentally responsible way than travelling to the North Pole!
By providing a high quality Lapland inspired Father Christmas experience here in the UK, children can enjoy an enchanting Christmas day trip without generating those nasty flight carbon footprints!
As a company we are conscious of our own impact on the environment and are committed to implementing green policies and using sustainable resources.
Furthermore, our very own "Eeko the elf"® is a fun character that teaches children how to look after our beautiful planet and become "EekoTM friendly"!!!
We know there is more work to be done, which we are committed to implementing, but for the moment we are proud of how our little idea is challenging travel convention so that "Christmas really doesn't need to cost the Earth".
ECO SKATING RINK
We have taken advice from the Carbon Trust to discover new ways to reduce LaplandUK's environmental impact. This year we are delighted to introduce our very own purpose built eco skating rink designed especially for LaplandUK using the very latest in synthetic ice technology. Not only is this surface safer for children, but it also significantly reduces our reliance on harmful fossil fuels.
what are the carbon stats? are they significant?
